The main intention for staying here was to visit Pigeon island for snorkelling. However, as it was during the changeover period to the off season, most days were too rough to visit by boat. I finally visited on the day of departure. Snorkelling was amazing with black tip reef sharks and turtle. Coral was also very healthy. I recommend the... More

Great stay for 3 nights off season. Large room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Located on less developed part of this fabulous beach and devoid of other tourists which was great. The nomadic fishermen were mesmerising as they quietly swayed tirelessly pulling in their nets all day long . Staff accommodated our request for Sri Lankan breakfast of string... More

I have never been to such a terrible hotel. 7 friends and I came for a 2 night stay and we were shocked at the behaviour towards us by the manager and the staff handling front desk. We had paid for a £15 buffet beforehand, however when we came down for dinner we were told that we would only be... More

We appreciate your comments. In our discussion with the team we found that your stay was appreciated until the last dinner which was a set menu against your expectation for a buffet dinner. Unfortunately the offer for your choice of food which was more than what a set menu provided was not accepted either. The management also revised your status... More

This hotel was simply excellent. The rooms were great.The food was delightful, the service was excellent and the location and the beach simply the best and second to none. I cannot commend the staff enough for how obliging, pleasant and great they are. When we go down to Sri Lanka next we will not hesitate to go back.

We didn't stay in the hotel, only used its pool facilities and the a la carte restaurant, which were both fine in terms of quality (clean pool and good food). Many members of the staff however are obviously incapable/not motivated to manage their tasks and this perhaps has to do something with the lack of language skills and with the... More
